My husband's grandmother died earlier this week. I broke the news to the kids the next morning. Maura was taking it especially hard. I kept her home from school, a mental health day if you will. Before she left, Schatz tucked a blanket around Maura's shoulders.
Schatz: Are you okay?
Maura: My tummy hurts.
Schatz (hugging Maura): I'll bet your tummy hurts because you are so sad.
